In a great turnout, 48 runners and walkers enjoyed a warm dry evening for the one, two, three and four mile Pace Race courses on Barranca Mesa Tuesday.
In the one-mile course around Navajo, Los Pueblos and Barranca roads, Melina Burnside had the best prediction, only .45 seconds off her prediction for an adjusted delta of 1.35 seconds off. Sue Elkins was right behind her at 6 seconds off her prediction followed by Joan Williams, 12 seconds off, Billy Strother, 15 seconds off, and Ted Romero, who was 18 seconds off of his prediction.
In the three-mile road course around Navajo, down almost to the end of Los Pueblos and back around Barranca Road, Nikol Strother had the best prediction. She was 71 seconds off her prediction and Sam Crooks was 118 seconds off of his prediction.
The two-mile trail course went out on to the Deer Trap Mesa trail, taking the south fork for an out-and-back run, or hike.
Predictions turned out to be hard to make on the trail runs. Jeanette Trujillo Rondeau was the best predictor at 130 seconds off her prediction.
Inez Ross did two loops of the one-mile paved course, in preparation for doing a 5K at the Senior Olympics, and was 94 seconds off of her prediction.
